The striker has been in poor form for the Red Devils since signing on loan in the summer, scoring just four times in his 21 appearances for the side.

Manager Louis van Gaal has left him on the bench in recent games, ands it is looking increasingly unlikely that the move will be made permanent in the summer.

However, Pekerman disagrees that the best has been seen of the 29-year-old: “It is a huge problem that we need to resolve, this problem is as large as the sadness that Falcao is going through now. I feel I need to support him because I understand how hard it is for him and the difficult moment he is experiencing. I want to work with him again and help restore his confidence.

“I know Falcao’s strengths, his mentality and his fighting spirit and I have never doubted that he will come out the other side. He’s in a bad moment, but he’s looking after himself and this week is going to be very important for him.

The former Porto star is unlikely to feature against Liverpool on Sunday. The match will be big factor in who finishes in the Premier League top four season, with the winner taking pole position in fourth place. The loser will have a lot of hard work to get back in to the Champions League qualification places.
